To discover a new culture
Who says new language says new culture! If you have decided to learn Spanish, you can go to the discovery of the Spanish or south American culture. Of course, not being able to speak Spanish does not prevent you from informing yourself about any culture, but as Nelson Mandela said, “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, it will go to his head. But if you talk to him in his own language, it will go to his heart.” You will then share many more things with people of different culture by speaking in their language. To open one’s self to a new culture is opening his mind and improving its adapting ability. By learning and understanding the usage of a culture different from yours, you will be able to easily overcome changing situations and problems of everyday life.
